Kai Edel

After cycling 380km in the first 24h, Kai (2nd in the first NorthCape-Tarifa bicycle adventure) had some technical problems at day 2. Broken inner shifter cable in the August heat. 3th day folowed with several flats and then he came into several storms. Running out of time to make it back to work, Kai decided to finish the route another time. He cycled in the night in heavy rain over Furkapass, Grimselpass, Brünig to Luzern, from where he took the train back to Basel. That was an other impressive 320km over a view high mountain passes in one day.

Congrats Kai for what you done! See you soon…

Der Event entstand aus dem Covid19 Bedürnis, dass Massenveranstaltungen diesen Sommer ursprünglich nicht erlaubt sein sollten. Es startet nun auch jeder Fahrer am für ihn nächst gelegen Ort der Strecke und zu einer individuellen Zeit.

Das Tracking wird bis Ende Oktober verfügbar sein, für alle die nun Lust darauf bekommen.

Now every rider start at a different location, nearest to the place he is living and at an individual time.

The tracking will be available till end of October and registration will be available trough all the summer.
